Subject[PATCH] RISC-V: Add an Image header that boot loader can parse.
Date
Currently, last stage boot loaders such as U-Boot can accept only
uImage which is an unnecessary additional step in automating boot flows.

Add a simple image header that boot loaders can parse and directly
load kernel flat Image. The existing booting methods will continue to
work as it is.

Tested on both QEMU and HiFive Unleashed using OpenSBI + U-Boot + Linux.
